الله جل جلاله

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

What is meaning of  الله جَلَّ جَلَالُهٌ  ( Allah Jalla Jala Luho  ) with  Zamma (piash ) on second Laam

 and

الله جَلَّ جَلَالَهٌ  ( Allah Jalla Jala Laho  ) with fatkha (zabar ) on secnd Laam ?

Once a mufti sahib  here told that dont say الله جَلَّ جَلَالَهٌ  ( Allah Jalla Jala Laho  ) because  it is not correct to say  and its meaning is not correct .

Is it correct or not  ?

And whether it is impermissible to say الله جَلَّ جَلَالَهٌ  ( Allah Jalla Jala Laho  ) and

similarly to say  الله جَلَّ شَانَهٌ (Allah Jalla Shanaho )  ?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The correct way of saying the phrase is Allah Jalla Jalāluhu, (with a dhammah). Saying it with a Fathā is grammatically wrong.

Jalla Jalāluhu (Arabic: جل جلاله‎) is an Islamic phrase translating to “Allah the Most Exalted”.

Similarly is the phrase Allah Jalla Shānuhu, it is said with a dhamma not a fathā, saying it with a fathā is grammatically wrong.

Jalla Shānuhu (Arabic جل شانه) is an Islamic phrase translating to “Allah the Most Sublime”.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
